Nighttime Soundwalk at Sok Kwu Wan
Listening carefully to the sound of the environment often leads to many interesting discoveries. When it comes to Sok Kwu Wan, the sound that everyone immediately thinks of may be the whistle from the vessels, people talking or bird humming. But have you noticed the sound of this place at night?
In this workshop, participants will get to know more about what natural sound recording is and how weather and time affect the sound. Brandon Chan, our artist-in-residence and AK Kan, a field recordist will discover with you the sound of Sok Kwu Wan at night.

About the Artist:
Chan Pak-kin, Brandon
Chan received his Bachelor and Master of Visual Arts degrees from the Academy of Visual Arts at the Hong Kong Baptist University. He considers himself an 'art labourer' who collects stories about objects and people, and creates narratives about their complex relationships. His work serves as an exchange platform for people to share their daily lives, and their abandonment of and attachment to objects, probing into the cultural history of objects through the stories of all walks of life.
